 Testing SMP Kernel Modules with UML

O'Reilly tells us how to test SMP Kernel Modules using UML.

"Fortunately there is now a method of simulating a SMP system with a single CPU Linux system. Fantastically, it requires no financial investment. The tool is Jeff Dike's User Mode Linux (UML). UML was developed as a new Linux architecture, although it doesn't have any associated hardware. It will eventually run on any physical platform. An instance of Linux--a full Linux kernel running with its own complete directory tree, device nodes, filesystems, etc., as needed--runs in non-privileged user mode as an application."
